    The cargo is another piece of evidence of a stimulated economy

      The “duty free” cargo is ……..

    • Time Shall Tell says:

      Why would it be evidence of a stimulated economy, was it purchased local thus stimulating the local economy? Or was it shipped in “duty free” thus making no direct financial contribution?

    Let the speculation begin. What have our friends in the Arabian peninsula delivered to these shores?

    • sandgrownan says:

      Who says the cargo originated in the Arabian peninsula?

      • PBanks says:

        Sorry, it was delivered by Qatar Airways. So yes it could have come from anywhere (and based on the amendment to the article, that was the case).
